Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie
Tennessee Williams is one the major writers of the
mid-twentieth century. He has written plays like The Glass
Managerie and A Streetcar Named Desire. The common theme of
The Glass Menagerie is that hopeful aspirations are followed by
inevitable disappointments. This theme is common throughout all of
Williams’ books and throughout his own life as well. It is shown
through the use of symbols and characters.
